There are very few topics that can stir up some emotions among medical experts and researchers. And one of them is the safety of medical Marijuana.
People have been asking, and scientists have been trying to find out how effective is Marijuana as a pain reliever, and is that enough to justify its use?
According to the recent Marijuana news, this plant is currently legal in more than 25 states, including Washington DC and Colorado. But it is still illegal from a federal perspective. However, the recent governments didn’t interfere with this matter, but the current one is threatening to criminalize it.
The less controversial aspect of Marijuana is CBD or cannabidiol, as it has very few intoxicating effects. The marijuana plant has more than 100 active components, and THC is one of them, and it causes the high.
But patients have reported many benefits of CBD as it relieves insomnia, spasticity, anxiety, and pain which are life-threatening conditions and include epilepsy.
It is quite effective as a pain reliever against chronic pain that many Americans suffer from at their age. And the best part is that cannabis is much safer than opiates if people cannot take them due to their ulcer or kidney problems.
The legalization of Marijuana can help people deal with these conditions. And this is precisely why many states are legalizing Marijuana. However, it is still illegal at the federal level.
But controlled use can help people deal with certain treatments. At least medical Marijuana should legalize at the federal level if recreational Marijuana is still doubtful for this purpose. This is the best way to balance out the pros and cons of Marijuana. At least for now, and introduce more studies to conduct further research on how it can effectively legalize while controlling its negatives.
